Leonardo is the leader, the guy with a blue mask, a pair of katana, and the difficult job of trying to lead his brothers in their battles. Of all the turtles, he's the one who takes the whole hero-gig the most seriously, aspiring to the be the best he can be and help the most people he can. I enjoy this young idealistic character, trying hard to be responsible, but still also be little more than a kid himself.
I like him, because he's the most like me: responsible to a fault, hard working, with a work before play ethic. He always has a plan, and it's often a good one, if only others would follow it. Like me, he gets picked on for being a stick-in-the-mud or un-spontaneous, but it's not that he doesn't know how to have fun. It's that he loves his brothers so much, that protecting them is his top priority at all times.
Yep, if I were a ninja turtle, I'd be Leo.
